to be an expert in islamic law if you want to have a prayer of discussing laws. there's lots of things like that. that's what's angering a lot of these liberals. >> steve, do you think the islamists will be able to push this through? >> egypt is a country of stunning ironies. they have pushed it through. the question is whether people will accept it. i think this was all kicked off by the fact that revolutionaries, supporters determined that they were not going to allow the muslim brotherhood to run the table unchallenged. it's unclear whether they will be able to overthrow morsi but they want to teach him a lesson by coming out into the streets and saying we will no longer be ruled by decree. you cannot take away the rights that we fought so hard for during those days of january and february of 2011. >> if you think of it, egypt is the great experiment. everybody now understands democracy is not just elections. it's liberal constitutionalism. it's these documents. it's civil society. egypt seems to be going in the direction of not liberal democracy but illiberal democracy. >> right. you're abs

reenforcing so you have more political inequalities that generates laws and regulations that leads to more economic inequality and political inequality. a -- an example i could find, something like bankruptcy law, something very technical that no one is interested in, one provision of the bankruptcy law is that when you go bankrupt, who gets paid first? a big issue. the answer is the derivative. not a surprise because they put it in when anyone else is not noticing who pays attention to bankruptcy laws? what does that mean? it means you encourage that kind of economic inequality. at the other extreme student loans can't be discharged even in bankruptcy, so that means the banks do well, but it really discourages people borrowing for student loans and in a country where we have tuition going up the last three years, average state university up 40%, the cutbacks in state budgets, incomes are going down, the only way people can afford it is borrowing and then they realize they get cheated as a lot of them have been, particularly in the for profit private schools, the result of that is if you d
